Another Day of Sun 

Earlier this week, Fiona, Luke, and I ventured to the levee for another round of data collection to measure our assigned milkweed plants 453 to 484. We were surprised at how warm the weather was considering it is the end of October. Our trio was efficient at collecting data, taking only just under an hour to observe all of our plants. Many of the assigned plants were dead, appearing to be suffering from the fluctuations in weather. Of the alive plants many had OLAP and we spotted a few red-orange insects. Unfortunately, no monarch or caterpillars were seen. With only two more weeks left in the internship, we hope to see more monarchs and caterpillars.
